In order to be compliant with UK law, all our products are free from THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) and CBN (Cannabinol).

Bud & Tender do not sell any products that violate the UK misuse of Drugs Act 1971.

What is CBN?

Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid that’s produced from Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) when it begins to degrade. THC will turn into CBN over time, especially when exposed to light and heat. CBN does not produce the head high associated with THC, instead a user will experience more of a sedative effect coupled with a mild psychoactive effect. CBN and THC are both intoxicating. Fun fact: THCA (the precursor to THC) is not classed as an illegal cannabinoid in the UK.

What is the endocannabinoid system?

In your body you produce human cannabinoids. Human cannabinoids are responsible for sending messages around your body. This human cannabinoid messaging system is called the endocannabinoid system.

The endocannabinoid system is responsible for regulating the biological functions of your body such as pleasure, pain, sleep, appetite, mood, memory, fertility, pregnancy and pre/post-natal development. Its goal is to make sure all these biological functions are in balance.

The endocannabinoid system balances your biology by using human cannabinoids to pass on messages to receptors, which in turn will adjust accordingly in order to harmonise your body.

Will CBD help with my medical conditions?

All our cannabis supplements are for supporting your endocannabinoid system. They are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

What dosage should I take?

Everybody is different are there is not a one size fits all. We do advise that you start with the smallest dose possible and gradually increase this until you reach the desired effect.

When should I take CBD?

Only take CBD when you feel that your body’s endocannabinoid system needs bringing back into balance. Use as a supplement when you feel you need it. DO NOT listen to companies that tell you to consume CBD three times a day, this isn't logical. You wouldn't take a paracetamol three times a day, you would only consume it when you needed it. Remember only take CBD when you feel like you need it.
